I have received a number of questions since starting Wanderings. Magazine, specifically in regards to Patreon, the monthly subscription process, Paypal, and Scribd – so I will do my best to answer them below.
What is Wanderings. Magazine?
Wanderings. Magazine is a literary and art magazine I have created, entirely on my own. Every poem, work of fiction or artwork that you find inside belongs to me or the artist credited (who are also paid by me for their submission).
Are you accepting submissions?
No. As of today I am not accepting any submissions. This is because I would like to be able to provide a stable, set pay to for pieces of work and as of now I cannot guarantee this.
Will you ever accept submissions?
Yes. It may take a few months, or more, but I would like to have bi-monthly editions that feature works from other artists, and writers.
How much is Wanderings. Magazine?
The magazine is $5 USD
How does Patreon’s subscription work? Why do you have different prices listed?
Patreon is a platform where artists and their supporters can engage with one another and where artists can receive support from those who enjoy their work. The subscription process for Wanderings. Magazine is simple:
Pay $5 USD a month and receive a PDF copy of the magazine and access to my Patreon-only feed.
Pay $10 USD a month and receive a PDF copy of the current edition as well as previous editions, and access to my Patreon-only feed.
Pay $20 USD a month, receive a PDF copy of the current edition, the previous editions, and a postcard sent via post and access to my Patreon-only feed.
Pay $50 USD a month receive a PDF copy of the current edition, the previous editions, (and one in print once that is available), a monthly postcard, a piece of mixed media artwork and a mystery box which is to be sent out each month and access to my Patreon-only feed.
All rewards are sent out once payment has been accepted at the end of the month.
What happens if my payment does not go through?
If, for whatever reason, your Patreon payment is not accepted I will immediately remove you from the patron list and send you an email, so as to avoid any issues with your credit card/debit card/etc. After 24 hours I will ask you to check your account to make sure there has been no activity. If everything is clear I will then ask you to use Paypal to send the payment instead.
I don’t want to pay a monthly subscription, is there a way I can donate just once?
Yes. There is an option at the payment page on Patreon for you to submit a one-time-only payment. You will not have access to the Patreon feed, where I post updates as the editions are made, after your subscription expires and you will not receive rewards.
I don’t want to use Patreon, do you accept Paypal? What are the other platforms I can find Wanderings. Magazine?
Yes, I do accept Paypal payments. Please use the subscription form on the sidebar and not the regular website Paypal button (as these donations are for this website only). Wanderings. Magazine is also being sold on Scribed for $6.99, due to the high fee that Scribd takes from authors, and begins selling 2 weeks after it first comes out.
If you have any questions about the magazine or this website do not hesitate to send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
